The State Hermitage Museum celebrating Israel’s 70th Anniversary Banquet

The historical ties between Israel and Russia date back to the latter half of the 19th and early 20th centuries, when many Russian Jews, involved in the cultural and political spheres, were influential in laying the foundation for the future State of Israel.

Celebrating Israel’s 70th Anniversary, on behalf of Dr. Mikhail B. Piotrovsky, the General Director of the State Hermitage Museum and the Hermitage Museum Foundation Israel Board of Trustees, we will be most honored to welcome you amongst us on the 29th of November 2018, at the old city of Jaffa, to celebrate this significant milestone.
